“Our Internet intellectuals lack the intellectual ambition, and the basic erudition, to connect their thinking with earlier traditions of social and technological criticism. They desperately need to believe that their every thoughts is unprecedented. Sometimes it seems as if intellectual life doesn’t thrill at all. They never stop to the lowly task of producing expansive and expository essays, where they could develop their ideas at length, by means of argument and learning, and fully engage with their critics. Instead they blog, and tweet, and consult, and give conference talks – modes of discourse that are mostly impervious to serious critique.” -Evgeny Morozov
